has been part of the elections since the day of john adams and there's no one better than joe biden to give us a little hyperbole as we all know. i think people discount that hyperbole. we know it's hyperbole. we wake up every day trying to build businesses. it's a misnomer out there that private he can quit profits by shrinking companies. in fact, it's just the opposite. private equity creates value by growing great companies. >> so when people look at the attack ads, that you take a company, a steel compa, you send the jobs overseas because that cuts the costs which it undoubtedly does, and in other cases you load it up with debt and you sell it, you don't think that's an inaccurate picture. >> that's totally inaccurate. in fact. we started a steel company in a cornfield in indiana. it's called steel dynamics. it has 6,000 employees today, one of the largest steel companies in the country. what happens in the campaigns, they need to use hyperbole to make these attacks. we have 350 investments, those companies over 28 years have grown twice as fast as the s&p 500. they've created $

egyptians who heard vice-president joe biden declared that hosni mubarak was a democrat in the julian assange was a high-tech terrorist. it is disrespectful to the dead and to be incarcerated of bringing costs uprising to claim the united states supported the forces for change. that is indeed audacity. who can say it is not audacious to the president's concern to appear to look leaderly, look back on this change, the people's change, and tries to call it his own. we can take hours because it means the white house has seen this progress is inevitable. in this season of progress, the president has seen which way the wind is blowing. and he must pretend it is his in ministration who made it below. >> wikileaks founder julian assange addressing a side meeting of the u.n. general assembly wednesday night. for more, we're joined by michael ratner, legal advisor to julian assange and wikileaks. welcome to "democracy now!" talk about what he said and also this latest information that has come out under the freedom of information act that suggests the u.s. may be looking at julian assange as a

biden and chris dodd did really well and the president obviously got the democratic nomination. he is a very solid debater. i moderate rated four republican presidential debates with mitt romney and i have the same feeling about him. very solid. knows his stuff. these will be really good debates. they both know their stuff and i am looking forward to it and i am not lowering or raising anybody's expectations. i think the challenge will be on both to get the job done 90 minutes. there are strict rules as you know next wednesday night, how long they can speak and rebuttle and what the moderators can do if you will and so it will be good. it will be good television. i think the undecided voters will get a better chance. >> i tell you what. i got to make sure viewers know that it is not just mitt romney's camp that's been doing this, that president obama's camp has lowered skpp stations as well saying that, look, mitt romney's had the primary season. he is seasoned. he has been practicing. they're both doing it. let me switch gears quickly. you have to comment on the todd akin issue. t

palin/joe biden debate. because there was the katie couric interview, the fact that she was able to hold her own was a victory at all. >> i think to some extent it factors in only as much as it drives the news coverage after the fact. even though debates are watched by many millions of americans a lot of what they understand about the debate is not only a factor of their own predispositions but a function of the way that the news coverage of it. if there's better coverage, i think that's probably going to send a more positive signal to the voters to be persuaded by this. >> maybe it didn't win or lose an election can create a lasting impression. i think of 2000 when al gore sighed his way through that debate. it really sort of added to the idea we already had of him as petulent, condescending, unlikable. that was an idea that carried through the rest of the election. >> in fact, that first debate in which gore behaved that way is actually one where we can see two to three-point swing after the fact. >> wow, yeah. >> puts bush in the lead. again, i think that suggests that there are alway

joe biden paul ryan and the republican party in general. it is well known romney's favorability numbers are lower than the president's many believe romney, mega-rich businessman, who once tied the family dog to the roof of his car, doesn't seem able to connect with a lot of ordinary voters out will but less popular than george w. bush, that's cold. for start i, romney and his campaign have done everything in their power to make americans forget about george w. bush in his eight years as president. romney avoids mentioning the form president's name. bush was nowhere to be seen at the republican convention in tampa. that's because for a lot of americans, bush's presidency brings back bad memories of the war in iraq, afghanistan, and the dismal response to the federal government to hurricane katrina, and the conditions that allowed the financial crisis of 2008 to happen, on and on. it is a long list. a few months ago, a cnn poll found bush is the least popular living ex-president. somehow he still gets better favorable ratings than the republican that wants to be our next president
